Fly on over to the Conservatory of Flowers this spring because the butterflies are back, and there are more than ever. The popular exhibit “The Butterfly Zone: Plants and Pollinators” returns to San Francisco’s beloved greenhouse with double the number of butterflies and more nectar plants for feeding. You’ll walk amongst a wide variety of brightly colored blossoms, watching (and sometimes ducking!) as butterflies fly from flower to flower drinking nectar and getting covered in pollen. It’s a fascinating demonstration of plant pollination in action. The Butterfly Bungalow in the middle of the gallery also allows you to observe the pupae in their chrysalis stage. You never know, you may be lucky enough to catch the moment when one of these transformed, winged beauties emerges. So, come get eye to eye with a butterfly this spring at the Conservatory of Flowers!
